Most parents have learned, often to their dismay, that children quickly learn to recognize the logos of their favorite fast food restaurants, toy stores, snacks and beverages. Example: You’re driving along and suddenly hear an excited squeal from the backseat as your youngster recognizes those famous golden arches, demanding you stop for some fries or nuggets!
Long before children learn to read, they learn to recognize familiar logos. This information is easily remembered and recalled and associations are made quickly. If a child has a positive experience he will file this information away and when presented with the logo again will automatically equate that logo with happiness, comfort, satisfaction, etc.
With this in mind, it’s truly never too early to help your littlest audience make positive associations with your logo. He or she may very well be future customers. It’s fairly common for children to grow up and patronize the same businesses their parents did. This isn’t just out of loyalty to their parent’s preferences. This is very much about their own personal associations with the business as children. Did they feel welcome? Did they have fun? These early experiences stay with a person, and influence future choices. You can help things along by keeping these little people in mind when choosing promotional products and giveaways.
